A hit on Broadway, A Year With Frog And Toad was nominated for 3 Tony Awards – including Best Musical. Based on Arnold Lobel’s well-loved books and featuring a hummable score by Robert and Willie Reale, this whimsical show follows two great friends — the cheerful, popular Frog and the rather grumpy Toad — through four, fun-filled seasons. Waking from hibernation in the Spring, Frog and Toad plant gardens, swim, rake leaves, go sledding, and learn life lessons along the way. The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in the differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A Year With Frog And Toad tells the story of a friendship that endures throughout the seasons. The jazzy, upbeat score of A Year With Frog And Toad bubbles with melody and wit, making it an inventive, exuberant, and enchanting musical perfect for introducing theater to youngsters, while keeping adults entertained as well. Performances are May 20 – May 29, 2016 at Washburn Performing Arts Center at Washougal High School, 1201 39th Street, Washougal WA, 98671.

Mittleman Jewish Community Center 6651 SW Capitol Highway Please join us in protesting the annual Oregon AIPAC event. We will start gathering in front of the venue, the Mittleman Jewish Community Center starting at around 3:45pm. See if you can spot your favorite politician! Count the luxury vehicles! Feel the hypocrisy in the air! Seriously, we are urging politicians NOT to attend this event as fellow Oregonians who support peace, justice and human rights. Their participation is taken as support for AIPAC, an extremely conservative political action group with an agenda that is not aligned with our community’s values of equality, justice, human rights and dignity for all people. While we have multiple concerns about AIPAC’s positions, starting with the fact that it is a “closed door” meeting to which the press is not invited, we would like to highlight just a few: 1. AIPAC has been the driving force behind much of the opposition to the Iran nuclear deal that was negotiated by our government and other nations, beginning with its invitation to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu to break protocol and address the US Congress in March 2015. AIPAC has continued to lobby in opposition to this deal, spending an estimated $20 million in its campaign to defeat this accord. 2. AIPAC incorrectly states that it speaks “for the entire Jewish community”. AIPAC has at most 100,000 members, a small percentage of the six million American Jews. AIPAC uses a large amount of money from a small number of wealthy supporters to convince legislators that they represent the entire American Jewish community. 3. AIPAC’s unquestioning support for Israeli policy is extreme and problematic. They have used excessive influence and power to silence the debate on Israeli policy, claiming that any criticism of Israel is anti-Semitic. AIPAC’s position is dangerous in that it conflates any criticism of the government of the State of Israel (a nation like any other that should be subject to scrutiny) with being anti-Semitic. This is done to silence legitimate concerns about Israel’s violations of international law and human rights, and makes it much more difficult to actually call out anti-Semitism in cases where it does exist. 4. Through intense lobbying, AIPAC is behind legislation that has been introduced to both bodies of the US Congress, as well as in a number of states, that would stifle free speech in the guise of “Anti-BDS.” AIPAC is also responsible for recent legislation that does not differentiate between Israel and the Occupied Palestinian lands of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem. This legislation is out of line with the international consensus and U.S. policy that settlements and land confiscation are violations of international law.

Ma Olsen ran a small grocery store in downtown Linnton for much of the first half of the twentieth century. During the Depression she forgave bills, feeding folks in need. Her store was bulldozed in the early 60s, along with most of the buildings lining St Helens Road in Linnton, to widen the highway from two lanes to four. Not long after this Nora “Ma” Olsen, while crossing the highway, was hit, and killed by a car. A plaque, bench, and a Benson Bubbler were placed where the back of her store had been, and that swath of hill was named Ma Olsen’s Garden. Forty-five years after her death, the steep hillside that was her Garden was overgrown with ivy, blackberry, and a tangle of fallen trees. We removed the thick green shroud that covered the garden and planted hundreds of native shrubs and flowers of over fifty species. Most of the five block long, seventy-five foot wide sliver of land, of which the Garden is the southern tip, remained buried under invasives. Why not extend the project north, since Linnton as “hanging garden” was the goal to begin with? So we roll along, the past two winters extending the garden another block, planting as we go. It’s gnarly work, with established ivy, blackberry, vinca and laurel on rocky, steep, uneven slopes. Uncovering old stone walls, terraces, mundane and weird trash heaps, and poison oak keeps the work interesting, sometimes too much so. We’re incubating plans for an tongue-in-cheek sculpture/Dr. Seuss garden in this section. We should be able to polish off the remaining weeds this winter, but we need an infusion of help and laughter. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal.

LOCATION CHANGE To enter the building call motion massage from the speaker downstairs. ***This is being advertised in multiple areas, so don't go by the RSVP's*** We’re touch-deprived, and most of us don’t even know it consciously. All we know is that there’s loneliness and stress and a deep sense of missing out. Increasing scientific evidence clearly shows a connection that lack of touch can lead to depression, anxiety, a myriad of health issues, and an inability to connect with others. At this non-sexual, fully clothed, safe and platonic cuddle puddle party we will talk about and practice how to give and receive platonic touch in a safe and consensual way while getting our touch needs met. ___________________________________________________ During this snuggle party we will: • Play boundary games to practice how to tell someone, "hey I don't feel comfortable". • Learn to check in with the person you are cuddling • Asking before offering any touch • Negotiate for the touch we want • Practice taking rejection with grace • and CUDDLE! There are safety "no-cuddling" zones where you can sit and watch if you are not up for cuddling. Facilitators are also available if someone is feeling uncomfortable. Bring snacks if you'd like ___________________________________________________ Cost: $20 cash at the door What to wear: Wear your PJ’s or anything comfortable. Your daytime clothes are fine too. The energy is safe and platonic, not sexy and seductive, so dress accordingly. You will not be allowed to enter if you are wearing a dress or skirt. Before the event: • Please be freshly showered, with clean breath • No strong perfumes, colognes or scents. People have sensitivities/allergies • Be 100% sober – no alcohol or drugs before the event ***Please do not arrive late*** You may leave before 9pm ___________________________________________________ About Daniella: Daniella is a professional cuddler, offering support to others through safe and platonic touch during their normal ups and downs of life. To learn more about her practice or schedule a private cuddle session, please visit: www.cuddlepartner.org https://www.facebook.com/events/245419889146913/

We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other media. Establish truth from fiction using critical thinking strategies, and learn where to find accurate information. This workshop uses real-life examples to show how information can be, intentionally or not, distorted. Logical fallacies, political ads, news headlines, graphs and charts, the effect of language chosen to express ideas and other types of information are examined in a “what do you see here? / what is missing?” type of format. The last part is about web searching, research databases, and other strategies for finding information – in order to be your own “factchecker”.

This screening is being copresented by 'Preference' one of KBOO's Queerboo shows, and 'One Land Many Voices,' the KBOO show about Israel-Palestine. “Pinkwashing” is a term activists have coined for use when countries engaged in terrible human rights violations promote themselves as “gay friendly” to improve their public image. Israel is the country most famous for this strategy, having initiated it as part of a rebranding campaign it has been engaged in for the last decade. Through the inspiring story of these activists’ victory, Pinkwashing Exposed explores how pinkwashing works and what local activists are doing to fight back. In 2012, activists in the Pacific Northwestern region of the US responded to an Israeli Consulate-funded pinkwashing tour featuring Israeli gay and lesbian activists that was coming to the region. Local queer Palestine solidarity activists exposed the “Rainbow Generations” tour as pro-Israel propaganda and got some of the events, including the tour’s centerpiece event hosted by the City of Seattle’s LGBT Commission, cancelled. A significant backlash ensued involving the Seattle City Council and Seattle’s leading LGBT and HIV organizations. $7-10 suggested donation; no one turned away for lack of funds. KBOO and the Clinton Street Theater have partnered to bring you a monthly film series about....well, it could be about radio, or about anyone of the many programs that KBOO airs--politics, labor, human rights, and, of course, lots of music. A new film or event every second Thursday of the month, so stayed tuned to the radio and check back on the website, because you never know what might be happening month to month. We'll also collaborate on bringing you special events throughout the year like the annual celebrations for Zappa, Lennon, Miles Davis, and more.

Golden Retriever Local duo consisting of Jonathan Sielaff and Matt Carlson utilizes monophonic instruments to skillfully weave melodies and harmonies into polyphonic tapestries. Golden Retriever started in 2008 when Sielaff and Carlson played together in the experimental pop groups “Parenthetical Girls” and “Au”. Sielaff and Carlson are able to quilt together the bass clarinet and synthesizer into abstract layers of disconnected melodies, connected through harmonic balance on the border if airy, meditative music and dense saturated atmosphere. They have released recordings on the labels Root Strata and Thrill Jockey Records. The Pebble Trio This jazz trio led by keyboardist Thollem McDonas is an eclectic free jazz outfit whose goal is to mix different musical styles, genres, eras and epochs in untraditional matters to breakdown any potential cultural, spiritual and geographical barriers that may exist. The trio’s leader, Thollem Mcdonas, was born and raised in San Francisco where he studied classical piano and started composing and improvising. During his 20s and 30s, McDonas was very politically active, and since then has found ways to incorporate these experiences into his music. He has released 50 albums on 22 different labels, and the last decade McDonas has been busy touring and playing over 1000 concerts in North America and Europe. Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble and Holland Andrews The improvisation Summit of Portland is excited an exciting collaboration with the PJCE and Holland Andrews.

PJCE’s commitment to exploring the wide textural possibilities of a large jazz ensemble combined with Holland Andrews explorative and minimalist style should result in an interesting product. Ava Mendoza Ava Mendoza’s eclectic guitar playing that draws on elements of classical, blues, Jazz, metal and noise had earned her recognition as the fret board and stompbox wizard in the Oakland noise and free-improvisational music scenes. Since then, Mendoza has relocated to Brooklyn, New York where she plays in her trio Unnatural Ways and has extensively toured the USA and Europe. Mendoza brings an everlasting fluxus moods and energies to her performances. Mendoza does not hesitate to jump from blues finger picking to abrasive metal and walls of noise all with seamless transitions to make the wide variety of sounds very cohesive and personal which a listener can identify as an authentic expression of a musician that does not believe in the boundaries of classification and genres. Vinny Golia Woodwind and percussion multi-instrumentalist Vinny Golia combines Jazz, Contemporary Classical, and World music into deep meditative and flexible performances. Over the years, Golia has been awarded an extensive list of achievements including, but not limited to; National Endowment of the Arts, Lila Wallace Commissioning Program, California Arts Council Meet the Composer, Clausen Foundation of the Arts, Funds for US artists, American Composers Forum, Jazz times TDWR, LA Weekly Achievement Award, and ranked first in Cadence Magazine Writers and Readers Poll. Vinny Golia has also started the label “Nine Winds Records”. Juniana Lanning Since investigating “new Music” and Musique Concrete, Juniana Lanning has been intrigued in sound as music, and music as sound. A graduate from Moorhead University, Lanning studied sound engineering and computer music composition. Her past works and ideas have focused on synthesized-computer compositions and found, natural recordings. After graduating, she has since moved to Portland and focused more on real-time improvised music. She plays in the duo “SevenEngines” with Kyle Bouchard, and created the local label “Fluff and Gravity Records”. Lanning still works as producer and engineer for the label she manages. John Gross John Gross is an experienced jazz tenor and alto saxophonist who has worked and toured extensively throughout his career. Gross has toured and played with jazz artists, such as: Stan Kenton, Lionel Hampton, Toshiko Akiyoshi and spent five years as house band member at Shelly Mannes Hollywood club. Now John Gross resides in the Portland area and teaches at Mir Music and Pacific University. Battle Hymns and Gardens This local 4-piece Portland group is an emerging force in the experimental and improvisational community. BHaG first formed in 20077 and from the beginning they have earned a reputation as one of the best improvised based ensembles in the greater Portland Area. Their music draws influences from improvised free jazz and we as various alternative rock influences. They have played at multiple local festivals and venues that cater to improvised music such as: the Portland jazz Festival, Pdx Pop Now Festival and Creative Music Guild’s Improvised Summit of Portland. Thick in the Throat, Honey Thick in the Throat, Honey is a joint multi-dimensional project undertaken by Claudia F. Savage and John C. Savage. These two artists bring performance, chants, jazz, devotional intoning and spoken word to the stage for a unique set of experiences. This project has been active since 2007. Rich HalleyWe can only speculate that Rich Halley’s celestial and organic music is inspired by his job as a natural biologist. From an early age, it seems that Halley has had a love for both music and the natural world. He started playing the clarinet at 11 years old, and was often to be found outside hiking and camping. Halley eventually went to the University of Chicago where he surrounded himself in Jazz and Blues. Since then, he has traveled and played music in Cairo and Central America. He now lives in Portland and leads a free improvised jazz trio as well as the sextet “Outside Music Ensemble” which focuses on playing acoustic instruments in natural settings. I’d Rather Not Talk About It This new improvised collaboration between Portland musicians Christopher Johnedis and Holland Andrews. This new project started in summer 2015 and has been continually exhibiting their music throughout the Portland area. The improvised performances focus on vocal noise and chaos, and how texture can emerge from walls of noise. Consumer This is the electronic experiment from Matt Palenske. These high paced, high energy performances keep the audience engaged and alert due to the sheer charisma Palenske exudes while ferociously thrashes his keyboard and displays pedal footwork. The sporadic, guttural synth sounds with elements of predictability and spontaneity keep audiences constantly on their feet, but able to find a pseudo-constant beat to lock into.

The 5th annual Improvisational Summit of Portland brings together the best musicians, dancers and experimental performers in the city and combines them with a small group of visiting musicians, creating a unique event. This year we feature a number of unbelievable artists at the beautiful Disjecta contemporary art center in North Portland with contributions from all corners of Portland's vibrant performing scene Round Robin Improvised Duets. Twelve locally renowned performers, curated by Reed Wallsmith of Blue Cranes improvise together for the first time in a round robin series of five minute improvised duets. $12 for one-day pass. $30 for three-day pass.

Golden Retriever Local duo consisting of Jonathan Sielaff and Matt Carlson utilizes monophonic instruments to skillfully weave melodies and harmonies into polyphonic tapestries. Golden Retriever started in 2008 when Sielaff and Carlson played together in the experimental pop groups “Parenthetical Girls” and “Au”. Sielaff and Carlson are able to quilt together the bass clarinet and synthesizer into abstract layers of disconnected melodies, connected through harmonic balance on the border if airy, meditative music and dense saturated atmosphere. They have released recordings on the labels Root Strata and Thrill Jockey Records. The Pebble Trio This jazz trio led by keyboardist Thollem McDonas is an eclectic free jazz outfit whose goal is to mix different musical styles, genres, eras and epochs in untraditional matters to breakdown any potential cultural, spiritual and geographical barriers that may exist. The trio’s leader, Thollem Mcdonas, was born and raised in San Francisco where he studied classical piano and started composing and improvising. During his 20s and 30s, McDonas was very politically active, and since then has found ways to incorporate these experiences into his music. He has released 50 albums on 22 different labels, and the last decade McDonas has been busy touring and playing over 1000 concerts in North America and Europe.

~Dharma Talk and Panel Discussion on the Theme of A Declaration of Interdependence ~Workshops ~Activities for Children ~Tabling by Buddhist Communities The Portland Chapter of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship is delighted to announce that Stephanie Kaza will give the keynote talk for Portland’s Thirteenth Annual Buddhist Festival in the Park. Ms. Kaza brings a wealth of knowledge and wisdom to the intersection of ecology and Buddhism. In these two realms it is a basic tenet that no individual stands alone, that we all need each other and the flora and fauna of this Earth to survive. We are interdependent. In addition to her talk, Stephanie Kaza also leads a workshop supporting the theme. Buddhism offers tools for changing minds and behavior that can be beneficial to individuals and interdependence. Stephanie Kaza has spent a lifetime exploring and teaching this interconnection as a Soto Zen Buddhist, a professor at the University of Vermont, and as author and editor. The city is enriched by her move to Portland. Her books include Mindfully Green: A Personal and Spiritual Guide to Whole Earth Thinking; Hooked! Buddhist Writings on Greed, Desire, and the Urge to Consume; Dharma Rain: Sources of Buddhist Environmentalism. As a city Portland has been feeling the effects of climate change and has enacted plans to become a sustainable city. Microclimate changes have caused more storms and flooding in areas even as the city works to complete a major sewer system upgrade. The city’s interdependence is feeling the strain as people seeking this kind of reform migrate here, causing a housing crisis and bringing more vehicles, and pollution, to the streets. This migration signals a hunger from US citizens to see more of this kind of reform, and also points to the wealth and the growing pains a sustainability plan can bring to a city. Local leaders Domyo Burk of Bright Way Zen, Nelly Kaufer of Pine Street Sangha, and Brenda Fugate of Oregon Buddhist Temple, along with a fourth participant to be determined, form a discussion panel on the theme. While the Dharma talk and panel discussion occur in the park's main shelter, the children's pavilion will be busy with story times, crafts, and other activities, including a Dharma Rain exercise led by Heidi Enji Hoogstra of Dharma Rain Zen Center. In keeping with the theme of interdependence, there will be no sales at this year’s Buddhist Festival. Participating groups will have non-perishable potluck food and beverages available to festival-goers. Many different Portland area communities will be represented at the booths. Pure Land, Zen, Vajrayana, Vipassana, and non-sectarian groups will share news and information about their communities. The event gives the opportunity to introduce Buddhism to the curious, as well as for people to meet and share news, smiles, and rituals. The festival is free, and all are welcome. Organizers ask for mindfulness regarding waste: please avoid single use water bottles and sort recyclables.

We are overwhelmed with messages from politicians, news sources and other media. Establish truth from fiction using critical thinking strategies, and learn where to find accurate information. This workshop uses real-life examples to show how information can be, intentionally or not, distorted. Logical fallacies, political ads, news headlines, graphs and charts, the effect of language chosen to express ideas and other types of information are examined in a “what do you see here? / what is missing?” type of format. The last part is about web searching, research databases, and other strategies for finding information – in order to be your own “factchecker”.

These two artists bring performance, chants, jazz, devotional intoning and spoken word to the stage for a unique set of experiences. This project has been active since 2007. Rich HalleyWe can only speculate that Rich Halley’s celestial and organic music is inspired by his job as a natural biologist. From an early age, it seems that Halley has had a love for both music and the natural world. He started playing the clarinet at 11 years old, and was often to be found outside hiking and camping. Halley eventually went to the University of Chicago where he surrounded himself in Jazz and Blues. Since then, he has traveled and played music in Cairo and Central America. He now lives in Portland and leads a free improvised jazz trio as well as the sextet “Outside Music Ensemble” which focuses on playing acoustic instruments in natural settings. I’d Rather Not Talk About It This new improvised collaboration between Portland musicians Christopher Johnedis and Holland Andrews. This new project started in summer 2015 and has been continually exhibiting their music throughout the Portland area. The improvised performances focus on vocal noise and chaos, and how texture can emerge from walls of noise. Consumer This is the electronic experiment from Matt Palenske. These high paced, high energy performances keep the audience engaged and alert due to the sheer charisma Palenske exudes while ferociously thrashes his keyboard and displays pedal footwork. The sporadic, guttural synth sounds with elements of predictability and spontaneity keep audiences constantly on their feet, but able to find a pseudo-constant beat to lock into.

The 5th annual Improvisational Summit of Portland brings together the best musicians, dancers and experimental performers in the city and combines them with a small group of visiting musicians, creating a unique event. This year we feature a number of unbelievable artists at the beautiful Disjecta contemporary art center in North Portland with contributions from all corners of Portland's vibrant performing scene Round Robin Improvised Duets. Twelve locally renowned performers, curated by Reed Wallsmith of Blue Cranes improvise together for the first time in a round robin series of five minute improvised duets. $12 for one-day pass. $30 for three-day pass. All ages. Featuring Performances By: Golden Retriever Pebble Trio Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble Holland Andrews Ava Mendoza Vinny Golia Juniana Lanning John Gross Battle Hymns and Gardens Thick in the Throat, Honey I’d Rather not Talk About it Rich Halley Consumer CHOIR Sponsored by KBOO 90.7 FM, KMHD 89.1 FM, Disjecta and Regional Arts And Culture Council. Supported by Revival Drum Shop, Mississippi Records, Control Voltage, Beech Street Parlor, Map Room, Type Foundry, Penofin, Beacon Sound, North, Stereophonic Mastering, Por Que No?, PoShines, OLO, SDMPDX, Trade Up Music, Museum of Contemporary Craft and The Waypost. Golden Retriever Local duo consisting of Jonathan Sielaff and Matt Carlson utilizes monophonic instruments to skillfully weave melodies and harmonies into polyphonic tapestries. Golden Retriever started in 2008 when Sielaff and Carlson played together in the experimental pop groups “Parenthetical Girls” and “Au”. Sielaff and Carlson are able to quilt together the bass clarinet and synthesizer into abstract layers of disconnected melodies, connected through harmonic balance on the border if airy, meditative music and dense saturated atmosphere. They have released recordings on the labels Root Strata and Thrill Jockey Records. The Pebble Trio This jazz trio led by keyboardist Thollem McDonas is an eclectic free jazz outfit whose goal is to mix different musical styles, genres, eras and epochs in untraditional matters to breakdown any potential cultural, spiritual and geographical barriers that may exist. The trio’s leader, Thollem Mcdonas, was born and raised in San Francisco where he studied classical piano and started composing and improvising. During his 20s and 30s, McDonas was very politically active, and since then has found ways to incorporate these experiences into his music. He has released 50 albums on 22 different labels, and the last decade McDonas has been busy touring and playing over 1000 concerts in North America and Europe. Portland Jazz Composers Ensemble and Holland Andrews The improvisation Summit of Portland is excited an exciting collaboration with the PJCE and Holland Andrews. PJCE is a local jazz big band that was originally started in 2007 by former Portland State University students Andrew Oliver and Gus Slayton. For the past decade, PJCE has been performing original works by jazz musicians from the Pacific Northwest. PJCE’s commitment to exploring the wide textural possibilities of a large jazz ensemble combined with Holland Andrews explorative and minimalist style should result in an interesting product. Ava Mendoza Ava Mendoza’s eclectic guitar playing that draws on elements of classical, blues, Jazz, metal and noise had earned her recognition as the fret board and stompbox wizard in the Oakland noise and free-improvisational music scenes. Since then, Mendoza has relocated to Brooklyn, New York where she plays in her trio Unnatural Ways and has extensively toured the USA and Europe. Mendoza brings an everlasting fluxus moods and energies to her performances. Mendoza does not hesitate to jump from blues finger picking to abrasive metal and walls of noise all with seamless transitions to make the wide variety of sounds very cohesive and personal which a listener can identify as an authentic expression of a musician that does not believe in the boundaries of classification and genres. Vinny Golia Woodwind and percussion multi-instrumentalist Vinny Golia combines Jazz, Contemporary Classical, and World music into deep meditative and flexible performances. Over the years, Golia has been awarded an extensive list of achievements including, but not limited to; National Endowment of the Arts, Lila Wallace Commissioning Program, California Arts Council Meet the Composer, Clausen Foundation of the Arts, Funds for US artists, American Composers Forum, Jazz times TDWR, LA Weekly Achievement Award, and ranked first in Cadence Magazine Writers and Readers Poll. Vinny Golia has also started the label “Nine Winds Records”. Juniana Lanning Since investigating “new Music” and Musique Concrete, Juniana Lanning has been intrigued in sound as music, and music as sound. A graduate from Moorhead University, Lanning studied sound engineering and computer music composition. Her past works and ideas have focused on synthesized-computer compositions and found, natural recordings. After graduating, she has since moved to Portland and focused more on real-time improvised music. She plays in the duo “SevenEngines” with Kyle Bouchard, and created the local label “Fluff and Gravity Records”. Lanning still works as producer and engineer for the label she manages. John Gross John Gross is an experienced jazz tenor and alto saxophonist who has worked and toured extensively throughout his career. Gross has toured and played with jazz artists, such as: Stan Kenton, Lionel Hampton, Toshiko Akiyoshi and spent five years as house band member at Shelly Mannes Hollywood club. Now John Gross resides in the Portland area and teaches at Mir Music and Pacific University. Battle Hymns and Gardens This local 4-piece Portland group is an emerging force in the experimental and improvisational community. BHaG first formed in 20077 and from the beginning they have earned a reputation as one of the best improvised based ensembles in the greater Portland Area. Their music draws influences from improvised free jazz and we as various alternative rock influences. They have played at multiple local festivals and venues that cater to improvised music such as: the Portland jazz Festival, Pdx Pop Now Festival and Creative Music Guild’s Improvised Summit of Portland. Thick in the Throat, Honey Thick in the Throat, Honey is a joint multi-dimensional project undertaken by Claudia F. Savage and John C. Savage.

Join us in welcoming the Golden Rule Peace Boat to Portland! In 1958 a crew of Quaker peace activists attempted to sail the Golden Rule to the Marshall Islands to interfere with US nuclear bomb testing. This bold nonviolent direct action inspired a worldwide movement leading to the Partial Nuclear Test Ban Treaty of 1963. After five years of restoration by Veterans For Peace and many friends, the Golden Rule is once again sailing for a nuclear-free world and a peaceful, sustainable future! We have an exciting line-up of speakers for this panel presentation and discussion: REV.

Jump on a trampoline, share a free hug, have your face painted, receive a superfood sample, explore your creativity on the open mice, with a free juggling lesson, at the art creation space and open mic. Additional prizes for the ninja obstacle challenge include two tickets to the Oregon Symphony, three Mountain View Ice Skating passes and more to be announced! Prizes and samples will also be awarded to volunteers helping to make this event possible. Proceeds will benefit Superfeed Portland, our effort to bring vital nourishing food to the poor and houseless community, and Sunshine School of Jugglings' endeavors to help mentally disabled people increase life skills through juggling. Superfeed Portland is our newest plan to bring fresh, healthy vital and nourishing food to those in need of just that, the poor and house less community. Specifically Moringa, fresh fruit and vegetable juice, and fresh sprouts are what comprise the scheduled diet. Moringa is the number one superfood based on antioxidant levels recorded on the ORAC anti oxidant scale of over 150,000 umoles. It is also arguable the most nutrient dense food on earth possessing more potassium than bananas, 3 times iron than spinach, more, more protein that yogurt. Fresh juiced fruits and vegetables deliver a nutrient package so concentrated it would be virtually impossible to eat enough of the same material to obtain comparable levels of vitamins and minerals Fresh sprouts offer the body nutrient reception levels virtually only attainable through the consumption of these types of fresh raw live growing foods. Very nourishing! Our juggling programs help people of all ages, levels and diverse backgrounds to improve in the areas of coordination and cognitive ability. We work regularly with special needs people to share the astounding benefits derived from the learning and practice of juggling. Thank you for reading this page and considering holding creative space in the name of peace, sharing, equality with us. The creative and positive activities you will participate in while helping us help others may well also be very nourishing to your spirit. - WHAT TO BRING: We are asking for attendees n lieu of the standard suggested donation for this event to bring us your old juicers you have stopped using (though we encourage you to keep using them really) and fresh organic produce for be juiced for poor and house less people and families.

The two-time Tony Award winning hit musical American Idiot, based on Green Day's Grammy Award winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. The high-octane show includes every song from Green Day's album American Idiot, as well as several songs from follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown. Johnny, Tunny, and Will struggle to find meaning in a post 9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of the city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Michael is called back home to attend familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. The energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line. - See more at: http://www.trianglepro.org/american-idiot/#sthash.ZbxDrzMD.dpuf NO LATE SEATING FOR ANY PERFORMANCE You can access your tickets from your smart phone.

Linnton Creek is a principle stream in Forest Park, one of the main trail heads in the north end of the park, and its confluence with the Willamette River will have a new lagoon, as part of the the 27 acre Linnton Plywood Mill site's restoration as animal habitat (a Superfund mitigation site). We are restoring the creek trail head, removing ivy and blackberry, planting natives, and installing an interpretive sign, trash can and custom (and amusing) dog waste bag dispenser designed by noted artist Ivan McLean. Part of a broad effort to eliminate dog waste from the park, this site is particularly important as the creek will flow into a new lagoon designed as a resting place for salmon fry, where clean water will be crucial. At the moment the main effort is ivy removal and the planting of almost 300 native plants. Hot and cold beverages, pastries, tools and gloves are provided. We'll be having a celebration of the project's completion in June. Activities include: Invasive Plant Removal, Native Planting.

For information about this year's celebration, go to http://www.juneteenthpdx.com/ Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation - which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance. Later attempts to explain this two and a half year delay in the receipt of this important news have yielded several versions that have been handed down through the years. Often told is the story of a messenger who was murdered on his way to Texas with the news of freedom. Another, is that the news was deliberately withheld by the enslavers to maintain the labor force on the plantations. And still another, is that federal troops actually waited for the slave owners to reap the benefits of one last cotton harvest before going to Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation. All of which, or neither of these version could be true. Certainly, for some, President Lincoln's authority over the rebellious states was in question For whatever the reasons, conditions in Texas remained status quo well beyond what was statutory.

There's no place to park your bike at the grocery store. - Your kid can't bike to school because of one dangerous road crossing. - Your neighborhood association is fighting a bike-friendly project. The problem is clear. The solution might even be obvious to you but how do you get others on board? How do you get the problem solved? The Bicycle Transportation Alliance has been advocating for better safer streets since 1990. In this free one-hour clinic, a BTA advocate will share some of the lessons we've learned about how to get your voice heard -- how to get your community's problems solved.

The two-time Tony Award winning hit musical American Idiot, based on Green Day's Grammy Award winning multi-platinum album, boldly takes the American musical where it's never gone before. The high-octane show includes every song from Green Day's album American Idiot, as well as several songs from follow-up release, 21st Century Breakdown. Johnny, Tunny, and Will struggle to find meaning in a post 9/11 world. When the three disgruntled men flee the constraints of their hometown for the thrills of the city life, their paths are quickly estranged when Tunny enters the armed forces, Michael is called back home to attend familial responsibilities, and Johnny's attention becomes divided by a seductive love interest and a hazardous new friendship. The energy-fueled rock opera, American Idiot, features little dialogue and instead relies on the lyrics from Green Day's groundbreaking album to execute the story line. - See more at: http://www.trianglepro.org/american-idiot/#sthash.ZbxDrzMD.dpuf NO LATE SEATING FOR ANY PERFORMANCE You can access your tickets from your smart phone.
